The reusability of those DAO classes seemed to be so important to that designer, and through his past experience, ...

When goal displacements like this happen, it's often instructive to look at them from the perspective of incentives, and look for reasons why the designer favored reuse over use. Sometimes it'll be for reasons deep within the designers head that you can't hope to get at, sometimes it'll be for reasons that you can get through careful (and tactful) questioning, but sometimes the reasons are non-obviously external.

The times I've seen designers (and teams) go wonky over reuse, it's usually been because upper management's fad-of-the-week became reuse, and management either offered incentives (e.g., "part of your bonus will be based on reuse") or they pounded the table demanding reuse "or heads will roll". Either way, common sense started a slow sideways move toward the door.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
